All right, the review sections seem pretty full but the developers respond to plenty of them anyway, so I hope this gets through:
EVERY. TIME. I. READ. THE. REVIEWS. 99% of them are bunch of people saying “MoRE PeOple WoUld Get ThiS APp iF yoU MadE EverYthinG FreE” and “I Am RatInG ThiS OnlY ThreE StArs BecAuSe I HavE To PaY MonEy” please. stop. use your freaking brain.
Toca Life cannot make all of the new additions free. Why? Because making these games is someone’s job, and it takes work, and people get paid for doing work. And they actually did make you something for free. They literally gave you an ENTIRE AREA FOR FREE. The Bop City used to be an app, and that app cost like four bucks. Personally, I think the new additions are a steal when they cost money at all. And they give you free trinkets EVERY SINGLE WEEK, EVERY FRIDAY, WITHOUT FAIL. Stop complaining already. Unless they expand further into selling merchandise and make enough money off of that, or stoop low enough to start getting sponsored by ads on the screen (which they won’t do) their new additions will cost money, just like any other app that someone poured their work and creativity into. Things cannot be free just because you want them to and your mom won’t let you use her credit card to pay for them.
The reason I like this app so much is because it’s as complex or as simple as you want it to be, making it appeal to older and younger audiences (I’m fourteen, if that gives you an idea) and it’s enjoyable and detailed and unique and quirky enough to be a little universe of its own, just like apps meant for older people like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing. It’s not some half-baked money-grubber. The developers actually care, unlike the developers of some of my other favorite mobile games (Abyssrium, I’m looking at you). The developers respond. They fix bugs for us, they apologize for delays and they have treated us with a new location consistently for MONTHS. I think it’s more than fair to pay them back in turn for the things they give us. I have lots of respect for the people who put in the effort to do that, especially when their consumers are mostly children, who are easier to moneybait like that.
If you don’t want to spend money on this app, you don’t have to. If you don’t like this app because you have to spend money, fine by me. Do what you want with it. But please, for the LOVE OF CHRIST, stop whining about how it isn’t free in the reviews. The developers actually want to know how they can improve their app, and you’re not going to help them do that by spamming “PLZ NO MAKE ME PAY MOOLAZ.” If you really hate the app that much, delete it. But I’m sticking through with my beliefs, and those beliefs have forged a strong bond with this strange little dollhouse roleplay game. Take my hard-earned allowance. I trust you.

(PS TO ANY CUSTOMERS WHO TOOK THE TIME TO READ THIS: If you made it this far, I might as well tell you the haunted house secrets.
1. You can tap the ground in front of the tombstone in the front yard to get the zombie crumpet.
2. The spaces for the paintings in the attic open up a secret room. You can get the fitting paintings from:
a. The wall around the elevator
b. The secret compartment behind the bookshelf, which is also right next to the elevator. Tap the lion statue’s head, and it will rise and reveal a button. (Bonus: the hint for the very obvious lion is in the ghost hunter’s briefcase.) When pressed, it makes the bookshelf go up. You’ll need the page with the lever things, too.
c. The chest in the bedroom upstairs. There’s another lever page here. Take it too.
You can also see if the paintings fit or not by the candles above the spaces, which will light up if they do. Then it opens the conspicuous dent in the floor and reveals a level to pull. Voila, secret room.
3. The lever pages then show where to toggle the levers in the weird machine thing so that you can push a button. Then the tube with the glob thing will rise and you can take it out and put it on people’s faces. It turns them green and it turns whatever they hold into slime as well, but don’t worry, you can change everything back by tapping the objects and taking the glob off their head.
4. Not sure if this is a secret or not, but there’s a little dog/rabbit underneath the covered table in the attic.
5. There’s recipes for the moldy food in the cupboard under the sink.
That’s all of them. Goodbye now!)
(update: toca boca apparently are not very good at storyboarding. the show makes no sense and most of the plot is the kids being huge tools to each other and everyone in their town.)
I’ve being playing toca world for a year. I really enjoy make mini stories and characters. I wanted to make this review to give a few suggestions for toca world .
Toca Life: Zoo
I’ve read many other reviews talking about how they wished there could be a zoo in toca life. I thought about and realized it was a great idea! There could be different parts of the zoo with different animal sections, mammals, reptiles, an sea life aquarium, and insects . There could be a restaurant with different animal like themed foods (Example: ‘Slithery Snakes’ meal would be pasta.) It’s seems really fun and my little brothers (five and seven) and many other fans would love it!
Toca Life: Space
I’ve had this idea that there could a space exhibit. There could be an area where you could look at planets, stars, and comets . And you could be a little area inside the exhibit where a modeled space ship is, you could even go inside of the space-ship. Maybe there could also be a space restaurant with all types of spaced/ alien themed foods . And also a gift shop with space toys, magazines, telescopes , mini model planets. There could be a space hotel nearby with spaced themed rooms. In the lobby someone could be selling tickets to the space exhibit. The space exhibit and hotel could be in, ‘Ok Street’.
Toca Life Stories
When I heard about toca life stories I was super excited. I kinda liked toca life stories. But I noticed you guys stop making places in toca life world. Me and my sister also saw that the weekly presents we’re getting worse (no offense). I really miss new toca life areas and places.
Anyways thanks for reading my review, sorry if you were offended. I’m very sorry if you were offended and that this review is long. I’m sorry that I used too many emojis. I really enjoy your game and have a wonderful day/Night ✨.
I think this is great, especially how it connects with all the other Toca life apps. I haven’t seen that many glitches. At one point all the food that was in a container came out of the container, and whatever was holding it was still there but nothing was in it. Also, there’s a slight problem with throwing stuff away. When you leave or turn your phone off all of it goes back. Sometimes that can be annoying, because if you throw away an empty box, all the stuff in the box goes back. And then you have to put ALL of it back. Like UGH. But this app is still awesome. I like all of the little cool details in the app. For example, ATMs, and how ketchup can dye hair (lol). I also LOVE all the Easter eggs! The first one I found was cat-superhero-robot one. ⭕️❇️❇️, right? Then I started looking for other ones. I consider my self a rica boca commons hunter. And also the fact that you’re not constantly advertising the other stuff to buy is Great. Over all amazing! Thank you
I love this game! I always play bc it’s sooooo fun I own a lot of the toca boca games, and I love them all. My favorite is Bop city. I also love omelet islands. You guys should make a video game that you can play on a PS4. Also i think you you should make Toca Life: super store. Like that could be the only thing it it. Just people, clothes food, and stuff like that. I really love the store in Bob city tho. But anyway, back to the the game, you should get it it is really fun and it can be for like, multiple players. You could have like 5 people playing if the screen if big enough haha I have an iPad and there are no ads it the entire game; so it’s great for younger kids. It runs very smoothly and there are even secrets in some of the levels... very fun! It’s really fun by there’s no limits, you can be anything. Id recommend this/these games for everyone. All ages. ❤️TocaBocaGames
I really like this app. It’s my favorite thing ever. But lately every time I open the app it resets everything! I even lost all the gifts in the post office which is really frustrating cause there was some great stuff in there. This has happened three times. Also the characters I made in character creator keep disappearing. They show up in the character creator but I can’t use them at all. They’re just gone. It’s really frustrating because I love this game so much and play it all the time but these problems are infuriating. Please fix this and I will be so happy. Other than that, great job! Love the game. And thanks for making Toca Life Stories. It’s so funny and entertaining
If there was more free places or towns I would be able to download more games like this one. In my opinion this game is the best mostly because the kids that play this at least get to create their own characters. The best part is that they can also if they want make the character look like themselves. But if Toca Boca AB made more games that were free everyone would like to buy the games. I love playing Toca world very daily but then it gets boring I try looking for free Toca games but I already have all the free ones including Toca boca hair salon number 4. I’m just saying the more free games then the people like the games that are free anyways that it.
I see that if I want to do anything else I have to pay WAY to much money. Toca life was really fun at first but after a while the same 6 areas get boring. There’s something labeled big pack sale ITS 50 DOLLARS AND DOESNT EVEN GIVE YOU EVERYTHING. come on dude. even if u have money of my own my parents aren’t gonna let me spend that much on a stupid I pad game. please can you just make the game like 5 or 10 bucks and have it come with EVERYTHING. PLEASE! all I want to do is have fun with out it costing me SO MUCH I hope you understand and take this into consideration. you can still make money even if you make it cost less.
I Love This Game So Much But There Is A Few Bugs First: Whenever I Put Something In A House Or Apartment And I Go To A Different Play Set It Just Disappears Mostly Clothes It Keeps Putting It Back Where It Was Found And It’s Very Annoying I Tried To Unstall And Install It Back But The Bug Was Keep Doing The Same Thing! Two:Whenever I Make My Own Character And Play With It The Clothes I Put On Them Just Vanishes And So Whenever I Want My Own Characters To Wear Something I Have To Go To The Place Where I Made Them And Change Their Outfit And It’s SOOOOOOO Frustrating! Please Fix Those Bugs! Thank You!
Hi. I love playing on this and when I found out that if you buy another one it will be built in the main game. My one problem is that it will randomly kick me out and reset it. I had an idea that you could do a Harry Potter Toca boca world with all the places that are mentioned in Harry Potter but you don’t only have to do that series you could do other series to. Another idea was that you could do creator where there is just land and the player can make their own world that can be any movie or book series. Please consider my ideas and if you made the things I mentioned I would definitely buy them.
Hi I am a fellow user of this and I find this game amazing . I have all the locations and let me tell you they are worth your money each one is creative and usually has a secret to it But I have some location ideas I think it would be really if since you had a theme park made a waterpark! This could be super cool ! This could have waterslides, concession stands, gift shops, and more! I also think it would be cool if there was a museum, Zoo, playground, and maybe a house with a basement!-hope this wasn’t a waste of your time it would be so cool to see this in the future your fellow Toca world user:)
